        Hi All, my first post. Have W10 Pro on 1903, yesterday I resumed Updates & got them for 1903, then tried to get version 1909 several times through the “Update tab” but it never showed.

        Is MS stopping updates for some reason to 1909, like they might actually be trying to get it right?

        Thanks for any suggestions.

        MS has not stopped upgrades from 1903 to 1909.

        Several questions:
        + Do you have Feature Updates deferred? This can either be in the GUI (Windows Updates\Advanced settings) or in Group Policy.
        + Do you have any other Group Policy settings related to Windows Update.
        + Do you have any Pause settings either in the GUI or in Group Policy?
        + Do you have a link in Windows Update below the “Check for Updates” that says “Download and install now”?
        + Do you have Metered connections set to ON?
        + Do you have (or have you had in the past) any third-party Windows update blockers installed?
        + Have you used wushowhide.diagcab to see it Feature Update 1909 is available?
        + Have you hidden the Feature update?

          Hi PKCano,

          Thanks for your reply. I am not a W10 user, went to a Mac from W7, but wife got a new W10 few months back. I recall doing something in group policy to defer updates (i think) , but can’t recall or find there notes what I did & this is out of my depth with W10.

          Any suggestions??

            See AKB2000016 – there are some pictures of the Group Policy settings. If you have any settings, particularly deferrals but also others, set under Windows Update or Windows Update for Business, you should remove them as they can block updates.

            Also, if you have Feature deferrals set in the Settings App under, Windows Update\Advanced settings, you need to set that to less than 150 days to get 1909.
